FACTS: Platelets, or thrombocytes, are the smallest cells (or cell fragments) in the blood. Under the microscope, they normally look like little disks or plates!
The primary purpose of platelets is to prevent bleeding by creating blood clots. As platelets circulate through the bloodstream, they normally slide along the smooth surface of the blood vessels without sticking. However, if the smooth wall is ruptured, platelets are activated: they swell up, stick to the exposed rough patch, and extend filaments which can help seal the breach.
The average person has between 150,000 to 400,000 platelets in every drop (or microliter) of blood. However, if platelet concentration falls to abnormally low levels (because platelet production in the bone marrow is insufficient, or because platelet absorption by the body is too rapid), the formation of blood clots can become impaired and bleeding can result. On the other hand, if platelet production is too rapid or absorption too slow, platelet levels can build into the millions per microliter, which can cause blood clots to form spontaneously, resulting in heart attacks and strokes. And even where platelet concentration is normal, platelets can become dysfunctional, because of hereditary conditions, disease, or the presence of platelet-altering substances such as aspirin in the body.
Fortunately, a variety of medical treatments can help restore platelet levels and functionality. In addition, where necessary, platelet transfusions can also be performed – thanks to the many blood donors who keep stocking the cupboard.

I recently received a World’s Smallest GI Joe vs. Cobra Micro Action Figures "Duke" figure from Knick Knack Toy Shack. The mini figure is really cool and great for your collection. Knick Knack Toy Shack was fast on delivery and will definitely order from them again.
I really enjoy all my items, shop vac works great, etch a sketch is awesome, my Mr potato head is so cool, I like how the magic 8ball really works and my glow worm is the excatly like the big one I got in the 90's
The cuteness of this kitty will creep up on you like a curious spider. But don't be afraid of the hour glass on her back. It is there to make her stand out more in a dark room. This eight-legged cat is great for Halloween as she spins her web of intrigue with her unique design. Of course, for the goth-minded, she is a year round favorite.
I ran across this site and I am so glad I did. The story of this business is awesome. I have been very impressed with the quality and quick turn around on products ordered. I absolutely love this site and will use it for many things I feel sure

I ordered several cats vs pickles from Knick Knack Toy Shack. They are so cute + needed specific ones to complete my collection for my grandkids. I felt the prices were ok, especially because I was getting the exact ones I needed. No random choices. The were delivered very quickly + was very satisfied with the whole transaction. I would not hesitate to order again
Love the quality and the color. Great product selection and super fast shipping, too. But be warned, these individual CVP toys come unwrapped. There's no case or packaging, so if you plan on collecting them like the Beanie Baby days, you'll need something to preserve them.
